In the court of "Hindiainfo" where many queer things happen, one day the king called his sage who was the teacher of his princes. He wanted to check the intelligence of the newly appointed teacher. So he called the sage and gave him the following task.
"You are given 4000 oranges and a dozen(12) baskets. The baskets are quite large and let us assume that extraordinary baskets.

Fill the 3-gallon bucket.
Pour it into the five-gallon bucket.
Do the same again. The 5-gallon bucket is now full and the three-gallon bucket contains one gallon. Dump out the 5-gallon bucket and pour the one gallon from the other bucket in. Fill the three gallon bucket, and pour it into the five-gallon bucket. This now contains 4 gallons.
